I am bald. This isn't a metaphor.

Thank you everyone for your donations
I am thrilled at how well my fundraising efforts were
and that is thanks to you, my friends and family

So without further ado....

Shelly's head shaving
(warning: I am making a weird face in almost everyone of these pictures.)

Some of my family before the shave.

The shavees! With Tyson holding the tiger in the middle.


My girl cousins and my aunt.

The boys...and me?

The hair.

Big thanks to my cousin Jenny who inspired me to go all Sinead-y for a good cause.

My site will be live for another week to take any last minute donations

  9. Is it liberating? It seems like it would be liberating!

    Now you will need to do a post about all the cute hats you are going to wear for the freezing Utah winter!

  10. I just want to say I think this is (and you are!) amazing. I seriously got all choked up when I saw these pictures. I couldn't give much, but I couldn't NOT give at all. Sending prayers and happy thoughts to Tyson and your whole family!

  17. Because for some reason I can't respond to your comments through my email, I have to write you back here.

    Shelly wrote to Angie: I'll tell you a movie that follows most but not all of those. Angel. Anyone ever seen that one?

    Angie writes back to Shelly: The movie I was talking about was Lorna Doone, but I will agree ANGEL was HORRID! I can't think of a more abhorrent MC than the MC in Angel--both the hero and heroine actually!

  24. Okay, I know this post was ages ago but since I only recently discovered your blog, I just found this post and I'm amazed! You and your family/friends are amazing and I'm awestruck that you all shaved your heads! So cool!
